ANCHORING TO ASPHALT
BoltHold is a family of anchors specifically designed for asphalt. The anchors are flush-mounted to the asphalt and provide a clean
internal thread for attaching bolts to the anchors. All anchors are supplied with bolts and washers.
Installation requires drilling a hole and filling it with our grout (EPX2 or EPX3), then pushing the anchor in until it is flush with the asphalt surface. The grout hardens in 15 minutes, allowing immediate installation. Full strength is reached in an hour. Anchors are rated for asphalt 2" (50mm) or thicker. Read more...

Our anchors resist pullout forces from 1,500 lb to 5,000 lb in 3" asphalt. (The resistance is much higher in thicker surfaces.) Read more...
